The Corrections Branch plays a leading role in the criminal justice system by protecting the community through inmate management and control.

The Branch manages community work service and supports inmates to make positive changes in their behaviour and attitudes.

Adult Custody is one of four divisions of the Corrections Branch and is responsible for the care of approximately 2,600 male and female inmates throughout BC.

The Division operates correctional centres with various levels of security and control for individuals awaiting trial or serving a provincial custody sentence.

Adult Custody provides custodial supervision for adults sentenced to incarceration and those remanded to custody. Correctional programs address thought patterns, behaviour and lifestyles that are known to contribute to crime.

  • It provides core programs and additional services which balance risks and needs; ensures linkage with Community Corrections based on common core programming and integrated case management;
  • communicates with stakeholders and participates as a pro-active partner in the criminal justice system.

    The management team of a correctional centre works within unique operational imperatives : risk-based supervision, proven rehabilitation programs, fiscal efficiency achieved primarily through well planned staff and shift management, compliance with legislation, policy, security and safety standards, 24 x 7 operation, and positive interactions with government, local agencies and interest groups.

    The Deputy Warden provides positive and progressive leadership and direction, effectively identifies and resolves problems and maintains a highly controlled internal environment.
